I agree with the suggestion about shipping your skis and boots, especially if you are not going to be using them after the Vail portion of your trip. Are you staying in LA for awhile or just making a connection there? If you are staying at a hotel in LA perhaps you could talk to them about having your equipment shipped there and stored as most hotels do have some sort of luggage storage facility. Hikers on the Appalachian Trail often ship supplies to US post offices that are in towns easily accessible to the trail so they don't have to carry everything with them. A lot will depend on your actual itinerary and whether you are stopping over in LA or just making a connection. You'll likely need to do some research and maybe think outside the box. I know it's always much nicer to ski on equipment you are used to but renting might end up being your best bet and the least hassle.

In my experience, most facilities give you 48 hours to have the unit cleared out and left in a “broom clean” condition (i.e. swept out). If you don’t get your stuff out, of if you choose to cherry pick a few items and leave the rest, then the facility can reclaim the locker and it would most likely be auctioned off again. You’d also most likely be banned from participating in future auctions held at that facility, or run by the auction house you dealt with.
